This is going to be quick, hot, yummy!
When you come to Romania and delve into traditional Romanian food, papanași is one of the most common sweets you will find, especially in and around the capital and major cities, in most restaurants and as dessert suggestion from local foodies. Papanași is a fried or boiled doughnut type cheese-based pastry, served with sour cream and delicious jams. The word appears to originate from the Latin papa ( "small food", "food for children") and it will definitely make you feel like a child indulging in a lavish sweet that covers your mouth in cream while you eat it.
If you've tried papanași or look for this dessert online you will find it under this modern, restaurant form of puffed doughnuts, where the dough is mostly made of flour and flour raising agents such as baking soda or yeast, with some cheese in there. What I inherited from my grandmother is a simple recipe, with loads of cheese, very little flour and no additives, and this family heirloom will allow you to taste the rustic, homemade, truly traditional papanași. It's quick too! Let's get to it...

Today I return with an unusual recipe because it’s a drink. And it’s not just any drink, soy milk is yummy whether it is served hot or cold and it’s also packed with nutrients and thus very beneficial for health. I presented another drink before which is corn milk. It is another delicious drink yet you may not often have heard about it. You can find the link to that recipe here.
Okay let’s get back to soy milk. We call it milk as it looks like cow milk but it is actually just a mixture of blended cooked soy beans with water.
